FCG138 – XML and Metadata and Bears, oh my! (feat. Philip Hodgetts)

Published by:

Philip Hodgetts has consistently been ahead of the curve for about 15 years. When he first started talking about XML and metadata I had no idea what he meant, today, it is the basis for much of our workflow in 2017. I always appreciate the times we get to chat and this episode of The Grill is no exception.

If you’re tired of the old “click here” video tutorials but want to further your craft, you should really look at “This Guy Edits” on YouTube. Sven’s videos dig deep in the “why” as well as the “how” of video editing and his video essays are very well done. In this episode we also touch on his path from independent producer to working along side one of Hollywood’s biggest producers. (Rhymes with “Hammer On”) Make sure you check out this episode of The Grill and tell a friend.

FCG136 – Eye Nonsense (feat. Rory Cantwell)

Published by:

The rule is “Always be Learning”. Rory Cantwell, in his multi decade career knows this all to well. Watching the transition from cutting film, to cutting video, from linear to non-linear, we can all learn from his experience and wisdom of choosing the right horse to back when it comes to looking at the technological advances that have happened in the past 30 years. Oh… he also really likes FCPX, so there’s that.
